Okay so this is going to be my first go round and blogging, so I hope I do okay with it! I've enjoyed reading everyone elses blogs as my husband and I have started this process that I only felt right by sharing our experiences too!
I'll start with a little background...we had found the community that we wanted to build in almost as soon as they started selling homes there in Bel Air, MD. The next big task was figuring out which floor plan was right for us and our family. We first toured the Palermo because I liked that it didn't have a formal living room as I sometimes feel that can end up being unused space, but we didn't like the feel of the upstairs...it felt very closed off to us. So our next stop was the Rome and as soon as my husband walked upstairs into the loft, he said he didn't want to look at anymore homes and so our decision was made!
I was surprised at how quickly they have you start picking out your options. The day we went to tour to visit the community and told the SR which model we were interested in he already had us sit down and start choosing layout upgrades, elevations, etc. I'll add our options that we ended up with in a separate post.
We break ground in a little over a week and I can't wait to see things really start moving! As of right now, we still just have a stake in the ground, but not for long...
